Community Volunteer day 16th September 2023


Sat 16th Sept 1.30-4.00pm
Do you have some free time & want to make a difference in your community?

Not sure what opportunities there are available?

Shenstone Community Library, supported by Shenstone Parish Council, is holding a recruitment event for Community Organisations across the Parish who are looking to recruit new volunteers.

Groups attending include the children’s uniformed groups (scouts, guides, etc), The Lammas Land Committee, Friends of Shenstone Tower, the Library team, Stonnall Playing Fields and many more.
Do come along for a chat …………refreshments included.

23.08.23 – Latest Update from Shirley O’Mara (Parish Clerk):

Time: From 12.45 for set up with doors open 1.30-4.00pm.

Refreshments: There will be tea/coffee, soft drinks & biscuits throughout.

Set up: Each group will have an area allocated for seating, display board, leaflets, etc.

Number of groups confirmed: Eleven. Would the uniformed children’s groups please advise if you wish to have one central hub or individual areas?  If joined, then that would reduce allocated areas to eight. These are:

Friends of Shenstone Tower

Friends of Shenstone Station 1884


Shenstone Parents & Toddlers


Lammas Land

Stonnall Playing Fields

Shenstone Community Library.

Other groups who have not yet indicated an interest to attend are still very welcome if you know of any.

Communications: A full page advert went in the last newsletter( June/July) so all households across the Parish notified.

Also, there are posters on street lamp posts, noticeboards & the website. In terms of attendees interested, obviously we won’t know until the day

but fingers crossed it will be a successful day. Please utilise social media as much as possible to share details yourselves.

Flyers/Leaflets, etc: I am happy to photocopy anything required beforehand for distribution.

I am waiting to hear from Support Staffordshire who may well be attending to provide advice.

Please note I am away from 31st Aug to Sept 12th. My emails will not be monitored in my absence so if you need anything I will not be able to deal with it until 13th onwards ( or before I go of course!). 
Kind Regards
